What’s been your favourite project to work on from the past year, and why?
My favourite projects include the Lazy Oaf shoot, as this was my first opportunity styling on a professional campaign, as well as my personal projects – making outfits to wear to queer nightlife events, and ongoing work related to queer nightlife and fashion. That’s not something I am ready to share details of just yet… so watch this space!
Can you tell us about your experience participating in the Lazy Oaf campaign shoot?
I travelled from Leeds for the photoshoot, so it was an early start to the day for me – I was up at 3:30am to get ready for my 5am train to London. We went into hair and make up and had our own individual photographs taken in our first looks, then some group shots. Throughout the day we also had to record some interview content for Lazy Oaf.
The Lazy Oaf Campaign was my first time styling and starring in a professional shoot, so it’s been a really exciting opportunity. I am really grateful for the opportunity to do what I love with the support and resources of a brand like them.
I also loved meeting the other creatives and learning about them, their own creative practices and projects. I think that the Lazy Oaf team picked a really good group to work together – our visions and skills all complemented each other well and I had a lot of fun. I didn’t know any of the other creatives prior to the shoot, but by the end of the day, I felt that I’d known them much longer than just one day. I’d love to work with them and Lazy Oaf again!
